The Fourth Dimension Space

枯叶北风寒,忽然年以残,念往昔,语默心酸。二十光阴无一物,韶光贱,寐难安; 不畏形影单,道途阻且慢,哪曲折,如渡飞湍。斩浪劈波酬壮志,同把酒,共言欢! -如梦令

托福作文考前练习(2)

题目:Do you agree or disagree with the following statement:

The friends that you can have fun with are more important than the friends that you can get help from.

 

In my perspective, I think people who can help you are more important to someone's life because this kind of friend will play a key role to rescue you from bad situation you meet in life. And also, as you can image, in fact having fun is just one special kind of helping so according to those reasons I have to disagree the statement.

 
First of all, the friend who can help you will have a positive influence on you so that you can improve yourself. For example, when you are in university, a friend who can help you may study with you and you could discuss how to solve the assignment your teacher gives; And also, when you find a job, this kind of friend could teach you the skills you need in the company and this skill may be very significant so that you can have a good performance. However, another kind of friend can't do this, and in fact, usually they could have a negative effect on you because all things they know are having fun.

More importantly, a friend who can help you may give you a hand in emergency situation. In this situation, the most important thing is not your happiness but your life. All external expectation, all fear of embarrassment will fall away in the face of death. Supposing you are suffering a car accident, this kind of friend could call 911 at the first time and sent you to the hospital. But on the other hand, the other kind of friend may just watch how you are dying because they don't know how to do in this case. They know nothing but having fun. If you can't make sure your safety, according to Maslow's hierarchy of needs, you have no chance to pursue higher achievement.

 
But this kind of friend is still indispensable because they inevitably play a role in your life, you can receive your happiness when you get boring in your life. You can go shopping with him; you can watch movie with him; and also when you feel lonely you can go for a walk with him. But we need to emphasize is though this kind is also important, a friend who can help you is more significant in your life and you must treasure your relationship because it may last life long.
